Excel Add-In for Microsoft SQL Server

Build 22.0.8462

Getting Started

Connecting to Microsoft SQL Server

Establishing a Connection shows how to authenticate to Microsoft SQL Server and configure any necessary connection properties. You can create a connection profile by clicking Get Data and selecting From Microsoft SQL Server on the CData ribbon.

Advanced Configurations

You can also configure add-in capabilities through the available Connection properties, from data modeling to firewall traversal. The Advanced Settings section shows how to set up more advanced add-in configurations and troubleshoot connection errors.

Configuring a Connection Profile

You can configure access control in a connection profile by defining the operations allowed against Microsoft SQL Server data and store the profile in the workbook to make the workbook easy to share. See Managing Connections for more configuration options for connection profiles.

Connecting from Excel

The add-in adds controls to the Excel ribbon, standard Excel formulas, and VBA classes for writing macros.

Microsoft SQL Server Version Support

The add-in wraps the official Microsoft SQL Server add-in; you can pass through add-in properties to connect and access the functionality of the official add-in.
